Moving To Defensive Of End Your Senior Year You Had 11 Sacks in Which It Showed You Can Play Linebacker and Defensive Of End, What Was Your Thoughts Of How You Played Senior Year: I thought I played well and contributed a big chunk to our teams success. Moving outside made room for all of our senior standout d-lineman to be on the field at one time, making it extremely difficult for opposing teams, but at the same time allowed us to enjoy the game and just have fun. Switching to DE was most likely the smartest thing I did on the football field to take advantage of my athleticism.

I love the game with a burning passion and have a lot more to offer at the next level.
